Local businesses pitch in to help Derry nonprofit
Located at 36 Tsienetto Road, the Upper Room assists needy families from around southern New Hampshire and offers a variety of programs, including GED-preparedness classes, parenting resources and programs for challenged youth.
Over the past several weeks, volunteer work crews painted walls, made minor repairs and installed brand-new flooring.
McReady said the Salem-based floor-covering manufacturer learned about the needs of the struggling Derry nonprofit while researching projects for its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program. According to McReady, nora systems has been giving back to area organizations in need for the past four years.
"When we moved our headquarters to Salem, we were fortunate to have found The Upper Room," said Heidi Anderson, nora's human resource manager. "It's an amazing organization with a mission that really resonates with us. We knew that one of their biggest challenges lies in maintaining and improving their building, and this is where we saw an opportunity for nora to help."
